AISD curbside meal service goes weekly
Wednesday, September 30, 2020 by Tai Moses
Starting Monday, Austin Independent School District’s curbside meal program will shift from daily service to weekly service, providing enough food for seven breakfasts and lunches at a time. According to a district announcement, “This change is in response to community feedback, providing a more efficient and convenient meal pick-up option for families.” Through Dec. 18, the curbside meals, which can be picked up at more than 40 locations throughout Austin, are free for kids under 19 or those over 19 “who are using special education resources or currently enrolled in school to complete the requirements for a high school diploma.” The seven-day meal packs “feature foods that are prepared by staff in Austin ISD kitchens. The foods included with curbside meal bulk meals are chilled and served cold to be taken home and reheated. Reheating instructions will be included. The healthy meals include protein, grains, fresh fruits, vegetables and milk.” Find more details about the change and a list of pickup sites here.
